Disney has announced a new outlet called Oga’s Cantina for its upcoming Star Wars Galaxy Edge lands in Hollywood Studios and Disneyland in California.
Oga’s Cantina will be themed to the iconic Cantinas that appear in Star Wars films including “Star Wars: A New Hope” and “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”.
The cantina will feature music and alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. Drinks will be served in “extraterrestrial vessels”.
It is the first time alcoholic beverages will be sold in Disneyland park since it opened in 1955.
Ken Whiting, a member of the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions board of directors, said: “You never know who you might meet in a Star Wars Cantina. Now you can find out.”
There is even a small throwback for fans – RX-24, the former droid pilot from Star Tours before its 2011 update, will be the cantina’s DJ.

The Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge lands will open in summer 2019 in Disneyland, and late fall 2019 in Disney World.
The area will be designed as a remote outpost on the planet Batuu and will feature two action-based attractions.
One attraction will put guests in the middle of a battle between the First Order and the Resistance while inside a Star Destroyer. In the second attraction, guests will have the chance to fly the Millennium Falcon on a secret mission.
Throughout the land, guests will also have the chance to interact with Chewie, BB8 and members of the First Order.
There will also be a toy shop in the street market run by a Toydarian, one of the creatures from ‘Star Wars – The Phantom Menace’, where guests can purchase exclusive merchandise.
The Walt Disney Company acquired Star Wars rights owner Lucasfilm in 2012. A number of smaller Star Wars attractions can already be enjoyed by guests at Disney parks around the world. These include Star Tours – The Adventures Continue and interactive entertainment like Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple.
